I took part in the study and it was such a lovely experience. All the team involved made me feel comfortable and gave me treatment plans and information which I wasn’t getting from my GP. The more people with PCOS that do this the better!

Interested in taking part in our DAISy-PCOS research study?

Do you have or suspect you might have PolyCystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)?

Would you be interested in contributing to new research investigating the link between high levels of male sex hormones and metabolic diseases in women with PCOS? 

The DAISy-PCOS research study is currently recruiting study volunteers from women aged 18-70 with suspected or confirmed PCOS. To be eligible you must:

  • Not be on any medication(s) that impact steroid/metabolic functions (e.g. combined contraceptive pills, metformin or steroid inhalers  – ask us if unsure)
  • Not be pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Not have kidney or liver disease

Participation takes place in one of our research facilities and normally lasts 3-4 hours. We can cover reasonable travel expenses (public transport or parking fees).

Contact your local investigator if interested:

Not eligible? If you were interested in taking part in this research project but not eligible for this study, you may be interested in being added to a mailing list for notifications of future research projects related to PCOS or other aspects of women’s metabolic health. Alternatively you may still be able to take part in our public engagement activities or a lived experience advisory group.
